I'm not even sure what I bought. I mainly got it for the graphics. Weird looking little girl on top with "Tony" The Shining finger on the base.

What the hell is "cu-camber" and "regular foot method base"? Whatever they are this board supposedly has them. BTW these guys do not respond to emails, just like Union and Deeluxe. They're all like boxes of chocolates I guess.

That would be Dorothy... I have the 09/10 Genovese in a 151 and also have a 09/10 Kwon in a 158. I have only ridden the Kwon and it's the sweetest cambered all mountain board I have or have rode.

I was checking out the Kwon but the specs list the 155 as having a 259 waist- that's huge! That's an average size for a 162.

Actually, the kid at the shop told me it's one of the twins from The Shining "Come play with us Danny".

Hmm... See: Buy Dinosaurs Will Die Genovese Snowboard - Shop for Snowboard Gear at Snowboarder Magazine | Snowboarder Magazine **Edit...After looking at google images of the shining girls and Dorothy the outfit is striking similar so I dunno, hehe.

I wouldn't say it's huge, about like mid-wide size. Most 155's are in the 251-253mm range. It should be labeled as a mid-wide and it's not though.

A Burton Custom 166 has a 253 waist and the 155 Kwon has a 259. That blows my mind although the Skate Banana 156W has 265 waist which also seems enormous. The Genovese 157 has a 250 waist which seems spot on for my 9.5 boots. Plus it comes with "mind control"- can't beat that.

The hype is mostly due to them being rider owned and a local/core brand. They've been around
A couple of years now. I haven't heard anything negative about them only good reviews. We'll
See how they hold up as the hype builds. I equate them with a brand like stepchild...
